What's the Time?
Some Jedis at the NY Comic Con this year
The watches I end up loving are often sleek, simple and modern. Like something from Star Wars. Sometimes, I have a weakness for cheap plastic ones with generic Japanese cartoon characters on them, but that's a guilty pleasure and I try to restrain. (So much so, that--and my boyfriend can vouch on this--I will go to the store and lovingly handle these little watches with their pigs in bow ties and baby chicks with eyeglasses. Yet I will not buy.)
Anyhow, my "bookmark" list is heavy with websites under the category WANT and many are specifically saved for watches. Here's a few of my favorites.
*Sadly, no vintage here. I prefer to find vintage watches in real life and have not found any websites that I can navigate easily online...
Rayna Watch, $130 (Comes in tons of colors...)
Time Line ELECTROLUMINESCENT WATCH, $150
Skyline cuff, $75
Masayuki Kurokawa Translucent Watch, $125
Bo Hansen digital wristwatch (small), $240
Jensen Chronograph watch, $390
Nooka Zot V Watch, $295 (LOVE!)
Bango-Time Watch, $260
SPACE LED Watch in Brushed Stainless Steel, $125
Sweet - Gold Metallic Swarovski Crystal Frame Dress Watch, $175
Tokyo Bay Carnaby, $30 (On sale! I have this in aqua and it's lovely)
Veiled Ladies Watch by Starck, $150
After all this, you may be saddened to discover that my favorite wearable watch is a cheapy stainless steel casio that I love with all my heart. It goes with everything and rarely breaks. It kind of looks like this:
The wonderful bf helps to keep me in watches every holiday, and he's gotten me some lovely ones that I am scared to scratch!
Honestly, their gorgeous faces generally mean I can't read the time, but who cares?!
They look good and that's what matters.
